It's a simulation. It's an education. It's an adventure. It's a reference tool. It's strategy and action. Whatever you want to label it, Lionel Trains Presents: Trans-Con! is a trip to the past, a journey to America's wild west that spans 1,776 miles. The game simulates the building of the Transcontinental Railroad, a feat that began in 1863 at two locations, Omaha, Nebraska and Sacramento, California. Six grueling years later, the two teams met at Promontory, Utah and the Golden Spike became an icon of American history.
